Awesomely Austen - Illus, Historical fiction (Children's / Teenage)

A fresh, funny and accessible retelling of Jane Austen's classic story, with witty black and white illustrations throughout.

When she was just 19, Anne Elliot followed the wishes of her father and turned down the proposal of the man she loved - a naval officer called Frederick Wentworth.

Years later, Captain Wentworth returns from his time at sea, and Anne dares to hope that their paths might cross once more.

But the course of true love is bumpy at best - will Anne and Frederick ever be reunited?

Narinder Dhami is the author of The Sleepover Club and The Beautiful Game series. Jane Austen is her favourite author of all time and she can't wait to introduce a new audience to Austen's final novel.

Eglantine Ceulemans captures all of Austen's satire and wit, bringing her colourful casts to life with warm and funny black and white illustrations.

Illustrated and retold editions are also available for: Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey. The perfect way to discover Austen for the first time, this bright and bold collection features some of the most inspiring and famous heroines in English literature. For readers aged eight and up.
